How are we doing

Strategy 1.1

Contain Development

Since 2011, ninety-nine percent of the region’s development occurred within the Urban Containment Boundary, helping to protect important lands and reduce utility costs.

Strategy 1.2

Grow in the Right Places

Much of the region’s growth has occurred in Urban Centres and areas with transit services, creating complete communities and reducing transit infrastructure costs.

Strategy 1.3

Protect Rural Landscapes

Minimal growth has occurred in the region’s rural areas, reducing utility expansion costs and reinforcing the Urban Containment Boundary.
